    Hi everyone,

    Just to finish the week laughing, or starting the new one.

    Check the Poo Pourri commercial on You Tube Girls do not poop. That is funny.

    Thanks

    Hi! Laughing and starting a new week? Excellent news.

    Hi!
    “Living With Me”…
    I have read that we have to treat our own brain like a real person.
    We have to talk to him, telling that everything is O.K., everything is under control,
    we have no reason of fear. NO FEAR.
    Then our brain (which is a computer) sends to us the feeling of security, of calm and trust.
    And I know this, because I often talk to myself being a lonely person.
    Difficult to find “the balance” with yourself. “I nothing regret ” like Edith Piaf would say.
    The most important thing is to say after years: I would do the same, I would choose the same
    if I were in the same conditions. With no regret.

    “Oh yes, then finally I rest”.

    Hi!
    “Lost Friendship”…

    We have a saying: If you nothing say, you a philosopher remain.
    In a friendship we must be very carefully how we use the words.
    And if you want to keep a friendship you never say words which can hurt and
    “leading to our future lost of our relationship”.
    Don’t hurt me!

    Hi!
    “Tell me you will sleep beside me and I could rest
    Tell me that you love me…and I will be happy.”

    Absolutely charming poems, dear Emiliano.
    Thank you.
